Ryan Anderson On SCOTUS Decision

“Millions of citizens in these four states went to the polls and voted about the definition of marriage for state law. The majority of citizens in each state voted that the law should continue to recognize marriage as the union of a man and a woman. And last November, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ruled that these laws do not violate the U.S. Constitution. The Supreme Court should rule likewise. There are two central questions in the broader debate: What is marriage? And who gets to decide? The people and their elected representatives should deliberate and vote about marriage policy—not unelected judges—and they should make policy that serves the common good by reflecting the truth that marriage is the union of a man and woman. The Supreme Court should not usurp the authority of the American people to discuss, debate and make marriage policy.” – Ryan Anderson, writing for the Heritage Foundation.
